Gender and Economic Policy Management Initiative-Africa - Draft Concept Note
The endorsement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by Heads of State and Governments in September 2000 was a turning point in the fight against poverty and throughout the world. While two specific goals, namely goals 3 and 5, are dedicated to gender equality, each of the eight goals has gender dimensions. Indeed, gender equality and women’s empowerment are not just goals in their own right, but are critical prerequisites to the achievement of all the MDGs.
